and touchdown. the space shuttle "endeavour" comes in for a final landing. but first from fox this friday night, almost 11 years into the war in afghanistan, we need a new goal. that today from the -- from a former secretary of defense. in fact, this is a growing number of bipartisan calls to either change the strategy or abandon afghanistan entirely. the concern? the conflict is not worth the cost. members now calling for a new approach. here is the problem. the current goal in afghanistan is to train the afghan forces to take over security there so our people can come home. but nato just suspended most joint patrols so training them? well, how could you? the move in response to the growing number of deadly insider attacks in afghanistan. so called green on blue
4:02 pm
attacks. afghans on our troops. that sort of thing has killed at least 51 coalition troops this year. today on studio b the former secretary of defense william cohen who ran the pentagon under the democratic president bill clinton and was a republican member of both the house and the senate said the united states cannot get afghanistan to transition to democracy any time soon. at least not on our own. >> we can't carry out the transition of the afghan people into a democracy. it it going to take years, decades and unless is we have an international commit ned lamont do that the united states can't do it alone and shouldn't be doing it alone so we need to have a much greater participation by other countries in addition to the united states. >> shepard: now, a republican congressman who voted against a resolution to set a time table for a full withdrawal has an entirely new position. florida congressman bill young is the chairman of the house subcommittee that oversees defense spending and told the
4:03 pm
tampa bay times newspaper editorial board i think we he should remove ourselves from afghanistan as quickly as we can. congressman young added i just think we are killing kids that don't need to die. meantime, the current defense secretary officially announced today the additional surge troops that president obama sent to afghanistan have left the country. 100,000 nato troops still there including 68,000 young americans. and a deadly day in neighboring pakistan. massive government-back antiamerican protests today. government backed threat ton further strain whatever ties are left between the u.s. and pakistan. the pakistani government declared a national holiday and encouraged peaceful demonstrations against the low budget antiamerican i should say antiislam video that mocked
4:04 pm
the prophet muhammad but this is not what peace looks like. in caucuse karachi armed protes fired on police, killed one and hurt another. police responded firing tear gas and live ammunition into a crowd of some 15,000. more than a dozen people reported dead in the chaos. the pakistani prime minister today called the international community to pass laws to prehe vent people from insulting the prophet muhammad. pass laws. and the foreign minister filed a formal complaint with an american diplomat. protesters in half a dozen countries rallied a country today. in iraq, thousands gathered in basra. some held signs that read death to america. in iran the iranian president accused the west of trying to spark religious conflict. he did that at a mill tare arery parade. in lebanon, thousands of supporters of hezbollah demonstrated against the
4:05 pm
antiislam video. of course, we have no way of knowing whether that video is the real motivation for many of the protests or whether the governments and others are using that video as an excuse to rally ainst the united states. the chief fox report correspondent jonathan hunt with us tonight. not exactly a helpful move from an ally announcing a national holiday. >> reporter: especially when you call it in the wake of the antiislamic video love for your prophet day. it would appear on many levels to give a green light to demonstrators to be on the streets if not a green light for the violence that ensued. one imagines that this issue may have been raised between secretary of state hillary clinton and the pakistani foreign minister at a meeting at the state department today although publicly secretary clinton would only repeat her oft uttered line condemning both the video itself and the violence. listen. >> we found the video that set the core of this series of see
4:06 pm
vents offensive, disgusting, reprehensible. but that does not provide justification for violence. >> reporter: secretary clinton also took the opportunity today at that meeting to thank pakistani officials for protecting the u.s. embassy and our consultates across pakistan. >> shepard: what did pakistani officials say about this video and all of the violence? >> the foreign minister at that meeting and in the comments afterwards offered no apology for the demonstrations and no condemnation as such of the protesters. instead an expression of gratitude for president obama and secretary clinton condemning the antiislamic video as they did in the ad running throughout pakistan and on the facebook page of the u.s. embassy in pakistan. here is the foreign minister. >> your condemnation has given a strong message that the
4:07 pm
united states government not only condemns it but has no support to such blasphemous videos anywhere. that message will go a long way in ending the violence on many streets in the world. >> reporter: it is worth pointing out that the violence on many streets in many parts of the muslim world seemed to tamp down a little over the last week. any pictures are flag burning are deeply disturbing. on this friday day of prayer and protest the numbers in most parts of the muslim world were much smaller than they have been. we have heard from the spokesman for the national security council that president obama next week at the united nations general assembly is going to directly address the antiislamic video and violence that encued across so much of the muslim world. >> shepard: we have been reporting a lot frankly on the antiamerican protests happening clearly across the region. today look that the. a large crowd of libyans

4:09 pm
here is the quote. the romneys thus limited their deduction to conform to the governor statement in august based upon the january estimate of income that he paid at least 13% income tax federally in each of the last ten years. well, democrats have been demanding he prove that by releasing more returns. tonight the trustee tells us that from 1990 to the year 2009 the romneys average annual rate of federal taxation was 20%. and the lowest rate he ever paid according to the trustee 13.66%. tonight the obama campaign responds saying why does mitt romney just -- why doesn't he just release the full returns instead of the bare summary he provided for the last 20 years so voters can make their own judgments about mitt romney's finances. campaign carl cameron streaming live from las vegas this afternoon. carl? >> we are live here on the
